Who we are
Following an extensive strategic review and planning process, REGLAP has now changed its name to the Dryland Learning and Capacity Building Initiative (DLCI) for improved policy and practice in the Horn of Africa and has registered as an independent resource organization.
DLCI is building on the mandate and work of REGLAP and is outlined in a strategic plan for 2014-2018 summarized as follows:
Vision: People in the dry-lands of the Horn of Africa are empowered and equitably represented in resilience and development policy and practice.
Mission: To promote evidence-based policy and practice amongst dry-land stakeholders.
DLCI is in the process of securing funding to carry out its core activities. However organisations that are interested engaging with DLCI are encouraged to contact DLCI for further information and to build resources for this into their funding proposals.
